“We wanted to make visual moments that felt right with the song. The color palate and pieces of movement in the video were all intended to reflect how the song made us feel. We wanted abstract versus linear because in the end it seemed suited the song.” – NAVVI
Seattle duo NAVVI released one of the best debut albums of 2016 with the noir-pop gem Omni (stream below) in late May via up and coming label Hush Hush Records. From start to finish, the LP is stacked with songs ideal for dark dancefloors and dimly lit roads. One of the many album highlights, “Close,” permeates feelings of introspection and deep yearning for outside fulfillment, but not finding it. The visual follows this line of thought beautifully projecting images of a night in the city conveying feelings of haunting isolation in the midst of all the movement similar in many ways to the opening sequence to the movie Drive. The fantastic album can be purchased on clean white vinyl now via Bandcamp.
